:In Self, World, and Time, volume 1 of Ethics as Theology, Oliver O'Donovan established Christian ethics as an intellectual discipline. He argued that it is distinct from both moral thinking and moral teaching but offers to each of them an ordered reflection on their assumptions and procedures in light of the Christian gospel. In this second volume of his ethics-as-theology project, O'Donovan traces the logic of moral thought from self-awareness to decision through the virtues of faith, hope, and love. Blending biblical, historico-theological, and contemporary ideas in its comprehensive survey, Finding and Seeking continues O'Donovan's exploratory study in ethics as theology and adds significantly to his previous theoretical reflections on the subject.
